Rain, wind and cold temperatures did not prevent the NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) community from coming Together 4 Mental Health at Temple Ambler on Saturday, May 7th for the annual NAMIWalks Montgomery County PA Mental Health Awareness Walk. 

While the weather may have canceled some of the planned walk day activities, it did not cancel hope…hope to believe in the possibility of recovery, wellness and the potential in all.

There be was Music provided by Soundscape Entertainment, AIM High Studio warmed up the walkers in the wind and rain, people enjoyed delicious samplings from Bake’n Bacon food truck, Dunkin Donuts, and Philly Soft Pretzels. 

They are grateful to their participants, sponsors, donors and volunteers whose resiliency raised close to $105k to help fund NAMI Montgomery County PA’s free mental health support, education and advocacy programs and events.

NAMIWalks is an active display of support for people impacted by mental health conditions in hopes of changing how society views people with mental illness.

The walk brings together members of the community to combat stigma, promote awareness and celebrate hope and recovery.

The NAMIWalks walk website remains open through May. Help open doors for everyone from every walk of life to have access to the mental health resources and community they deserve.
